So I tossed in the tried and true traditional pink and green bottle of mascara by Maybelline for a shiny gold bottle of the lash lengthener from Yves St. Laurant. I made the mistake of buying it with thaKing in tow. Least to say there was some commentary about the $30 price tag. Nonetheless, it works fabulously! Long , luscious lashes. The fact that I sometimes remember to use Latisse doesn't hurt either. There is no phantom lash prints left trailing behind on my eyelids and little to no flaking.

In the middle of drinking beer, enjoying the sunshine, and throwing money away on horses at Keeneland, Friday, I received a call from a dear friend, Ramsey. She informed that she hoped she wasn't ruing my afternoon, but her husband, Robert, just found out he has a brain tumor. That is so her to worry about everyone else first. She continued to say, fortunately, that the tumor was operable and probably non-cancerous.
Ramsey and Robert were just married in 2008 and welcomed a beautiful baby boy in the fall of 2009. No one is ever prepared for a situation such as this, let alone such a young family. I truly think everything will be fine, but it does make me stop and think how truly blessed we are to get up everyday and be healthy enough to walk or run with the dog, for instance. Instead of wondering what to wear to Keeneland, or which hat to wear to the Derby, there are much much greater worries for some. Please remember them in your prayers.

thaKing and I had a fabulous weekend. I started by purchasing my Coach Cal Maker's Mark bottle! People camped out for these things! I woke up at 7:15am (in your face campers!) and got to a certain store about 8:00am, where I had success purchasing one of these coveted items in the past. I was about the 25th person in line. The Cal bottle is safe and secure amongst the fine china in the china cabinet. Is that tacky or just Kentucky?
We went to Keeneland that afternoon and had a great time enjoying the beautiful weather. We were comfortable in the box away from the record crowd. I am so spoiled now! We were pleasantly surprised to see Josie and Mitch! Their never too young to go to the track!
Today, we went to London to see the fam and enjoy some o so delicious chicken and dumplins' made courtesy of my mother. It was great to spend time with everyone. Elka had a blast being off leash and chasing birds.
